"Orphan Black," BBC America's surprise sci-fi hit, returned for its second season on Saturday night, and it's bigger, bolder and better than ever.

Tatiana Maslany's coterie of clones is battling for survival, sanity and answers, with Sarah desperately seeking daughter Kira, Cosima digging deeper into the neolutionists' labs, Alison vacillating between craft-room-neatening super mom and gun-toting vigilante -- and Rachael, apparently, running the whole she-bang.

Oh and that wacky Ukrainian Helena is still alive! How on Earth...?

Need to talk about it? We sure do.  And this week, we're going directly to the source -- co-creator Graeme Manson. He'll be joining TV reporter Yvonne Villarreal and TV critic Mary McNamara at noon Monday to talk all things clones, except, of course, spoilers.
